The BeePort – XXL 3D Printed Bee Feeder

Original price was: £95.90.Current price is: £82.75.

Description

Yes, it was a case of ‘Go Big or Go Home’…

People seem to love the BeePod, the BeeBar and my other bee-feeding units. They’ve been shipped to the US, UK, Australia, Russia, Singapore, and so many other places, so there’s obviously a lot of you lovely people out there who like to take care of our buzzy little friends! In continuing to collaborate with Joanna of We Love Our Bees! in Florida I realised that a much bigger unit was needed for people who have a LOT of bees to take care of. It was time, it seemed, for The BeePort.

This latest addition to my Wildlife-Care range combines all the others in one way or another. There’s a pool in the base which can be filled with water, so the bees can drink (while standing on the little islands so they don’t get their wings wet). There’s the little cups for nectar, honey, sugar-water, so honeybees can stop to fill up on that sweet, sweet sugar-hit, and if you’re catering for Orchid Bees the little cups can also contain clove oil; I’ve printed the inner helix in PLA, so it’ll be safe to use with clove-oil. The whole thing can be hung from a special detachable locking hanger unit, or it can be sited on a table with its own special mounting collar. The whole thing is put together with a locking-collar at its equator, holding the two tough hull sections together while still having large, airy holes to let the bees fly in! Hence why I called it The BeePort; it’s like an international airport… for bees!

Your BeePort will be delivered with all the components ready for use, but none of it will be glued together; this will make it able to be fully disassembled for cleaning. If you’d prefer that I DO glue it together please send me a message to let me know. It can also be printed in different colours if you like! Originally the inner cup-helix was going to be white or blue, but experimentation seems to show that bees are more attracted to yellow.

Order yours and open your very own bee-airport today!

Diameter (widest point, across Locking Collar): 165.5mm
Height (with Hanger Unit attached): 208mm
Height (without Hanger Unit): 168mm

    I have yet to receive any confirmation that this item was shipped. Contacted the seller via email several times and still no response. Very frustrating.

    I have bought LOTS of these Bee Pods (as well as Bee Clubs) from Numonday (the seller is Trevor of Enterprise XD Design and I cannot speak highly enough of him or the Numonday experience – he is professional, great communication – probably the best seller on any marketplace I’ve ever dealt with and his products are FANTASTIC! Thanks to his pods and clubs, we have created a huge Orchid Bee following here in south Florida – we put drops of clove oil in the pods and clubs and the male Orchid Bees come and rub it on their legs to attract the ladies – Trevor – you are an absolute genius and gentleman and I hope to continue buying your products through Numonday for many years to come. Thank you for all you do for wildlife and the bees.

    Trevor never fails to astound me with the beautiful colors of his bee pods and bee clubs…. yes, they serve a valuable purpose here in Florida (I put clove oil in them to attract male Orchid Bees, who rub the clove oil on their legs) but they are just so beautiful to look at. Trevor, you sir, are a talented, professional and incredibly creative GENIUS with all the things you do for the bees – THANK YOU THANK YOU – will be ordering more. People in Florida just go nuts for them! We spend hours watching these fascinating Orchid Bees with the clove oil….. just wonderful.

  4. Weloveourbees

    They visit it every day – I put some cotton balls in it soaked in clove oil, and these little green shy Orchid bees (the males) come and gather the clove oil, and rub it on their legs, to attract the ladies. It’s easy to maintain – just basically screws apart – has provided me HOURS of entertainment and has helped the orchid bees woo their women. Brilliant invention and design!

    Mine is the large version, so it holds a lot more water and in Florida, it’s so hot that water evaporates quickly – which is why I asked Trevor to make me a giant one! It’s BEYOND my wildest expectations! It’s just fantastic – a real quality product – same color as the previous bee waterer he made me (that the bees love – except that one didn’t have a thread for a water bottle, so it dried up too quickly in this heat) – deep so holds a lot of water, numerous stepping stones and rims so that if a bee falls in (which she will), she can easily get out. It easily fits my sport top water bottles (so the thread is perfect) – It exceeded my expectations. Just WONDERFUL!

  6. Weloveourbees

    My Bee Spa is fantastic – it’s very large (diameter wise), so will hold a lot of water – FITS MY WATER BOTTLE PERFECTLY – it’s quite deep, so that means it will hold a lot of water, although the stepping stones and rim edges are very convenient so bees have something to climb out on to if they fall in – this is the BEST bee watering station I’ve ever had. It’s a quality product. I am BEYOND thrilled with it!!!!

    I actually got this for a friend of mine who is super wealthy, has all the jewelry she could ever want – and I didn’t know what to get her for Christmas – she also loves bees and when I gave her these earrings, she was absolutely THRILLED! They’re fun, bright – well made – and she wore these to a fancy Christmas party and got LOTS of great comments!!!!! I have a pair myself and am always getting great fun comments – they are just too cute for words!!!!! Great gifts for the bee lovers in your life – you can get regular honey bees or green orchid bee earrings – love love love them! Shipping was quick, but took a while to get here over Christmas (mail delays) but Trevor was very helpful and quick email responses. Great experience. Will buy more from you.

    I live in Florida, and we get beautiful, shy green orchid bees – the males love clove oil, so I put clove oil on cotton balls, put it in the bee pod, and the little dudes come right away – rub the oil on the legs so it attracts the ladies! The bee pod is easy to take apart to put more clove oil in there – and several openings mean several orchid bees can come at the same time – it’s the most ingenious design – LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. You have made me and many male orchid bees very happy. The design is really cool, this little sphere hanging from our deck shade, so it looks cool as well as being very functional for the orchid bees. Trevor was super responsive to a question I had about shipping, great customer service, will be back. Thank you!

  12. Weloveourbees

    Outstanding customer service – the Bee Feeder is amazing, I put some cotton balls soaked with clove oil (must be food grade) and the male orchid bees flock to it – I like this design because of the canopy, protects the base from rain – will be ordering more. Trevor is very responsive to email inquiries (was a slight delay with mail over Christmas) – buy with confidence from him, I have bought quite a few things and he’s one of the best sellers out there. LOVE the bee feeder and the color is awesome!
